Parliamentary Assembly session : 23 – 27 September 2002 

Urgent debate on the threat of military action against Iraq

[25 SEP 2002] In his report, discussed on 26 September by the Parliamentary Assembly, Guillermo Martinez Casañ (Spain) calls on Council of Europe member States, observers and special guests to intensify their efforts to prevent any new war in Iraq and to identify a solution to the ''Iraq problem'' drawing on the principles and mechanisms of the UN. He underlines his profound concern about the potential rift between the West and the Muslim world in the event of an armed conflict.
